MWC: Nokia 105 and Nokia 301, Two New Feature Phones

Starting at around £13!

With all these high-end smartphones taking up the headlines at MWC, you'd almost forget there are also some feature phones being released. Two of these are the Nokia 105 and 301.

At Nokia's press conference at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the Finnish company presented two phones made 'just for phoning': the Nokia 105 and Nokia 301.

There's no NFC or other fancy-shmancy features on the 105 and 301, these are just back-to-the-basics cell phones.

The Nokia 105 will cost €15 (around £13) and, unlike its predecessor the Nokia 1280, it has a colour screen. It picks up FM radio, comes with pre-installed games and has a flashlight function. The 105 will go on sale in the second quarter of 2013 in an extremely wide-scale release: Europe, China, India, Russia, Africa, Asia-Pacific and the Middle East.

The (slightly) more up-market Nokia 301 has a 3.2-Megapixel camera, is HSPA-compatible and supports certain apps, such as Twitter, YouTube and Facebook. There's a dual-SIM version and a single-SIM version, both of which will go for €65 (around £56) and will be released in the same regions as the 105, excluding the United States.
